Even through we are now knee-deep in mistletoe and holly, it won’t be long before Valentine’s Day is upon us with an extra special treat for 2014–Chicago’s Second Annual Theatre Week.
The 2014 Chicago Theatre Week, February 11 through February 16, will feature over 100 productions. New to this year’s Theatre Week is a partnership with area hotels, which will be offering Chicago Theatre Week packages to include a hotel room and a pair of tickets to one of ten productions.
Visitors and residents will again have the opportunity to sample the extraordinary range of theatrical offerings throughout Chicagoland. The week celebrates Chicago theatre by offering patrons special incentives and encouraging participation throughout all Chicago neighborhoods.
Coming in the gray days of February when cabin fever is reaching it’s pinnacle, Chicago Theatre Week provides a great escape and a potent anecdote to lift spirits.
Unfortunately tickets and hotel information will not be available until January 7, 2014 so you can’t slip them in a Christmas stocking but you can start to make plans now especially if you are coming from out of town.
Ticket sales and hotel offers will be listed on a centralized website, click here starting at 9:00 a.m. CST January 7, 2014.
